You might try to start your "B" roll cam at the same time as your main cameras. You will have some dead time on your B roll cam but syncing them with a clap is the easiest way to get all of your footage synced. If you miss this step, I watch all of the b roll footage listening to the sound for key word or noise Mark that place and render it to get all my b roll footage trimed and done, then I start
looking at the rest of the footage, noting where the key words are and bring in the B roll footage where needed, a very time consuming process. Its best to run your B roll cam simultanious with your main cams.
